KORN's THE FAMILY VALUES TOUR Stages Triumphant Return With Sold-Out Shows

KORN's The Family Values Tour is back — in a big way — as fans in the south are turning out in record numbers to see this summer's hottest tour.

Kicking off with a sold-out show of 17,000 rocking fans at Nashville's Starwood Amphitheatre, The Family Values Tour has gone on to set new numbers for the tour KORN created and headlined in 1998, as evidenced by shows in Atlanta, GA (17,900), San Antonio (17,000), Dallas (19,000) and Houston (18,000).

The tremendous response to The Family Values Tour comes on the heels of KORN's platinum-plus selling album "See You on the other Side", which has been in the Billboard Top 100 for 35 weeks, and is the first release of their ground-breaking new joint venture deal with EMI and Live Nation.

"KORN's new deals are working for all involved," said Peter Katsis, senior VP of music at The Firm, co-owners of The Family Values Tour. "Through all of KORN's new partnerships, we are able to blow up the KORN brand as well as being able to deliver a great bill and a great day for KORN fans."

"The fact that a fan can see an entire day of music — all great bands — and participate in other festival activities all for a value price has generated a groundswell of demand for this concert," said Live Nation Executive Vice President of Amphitheatre Programming, Jason Garner. "With the bulk of the tour dates still to come, we expect The Family Values Tour to become one of the most successful tours of the summer."

Along with KORN, this year's other main stage artists are DEFTONES, STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY. With nine artists on the tour and a variety of attractions on the "Family Values Campus" — including 3-on-3 paintball competition — fans get even greater value from the Live Nation-produced The Family Values Tour, which also features 10 YEARS, DEADSY, BURY YOUR DEAD and BULLETS AND OCTANE.
